Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This classic song by the 70s UK Glam Rock stars: Slade was originally played on electric
guitar which would have meant a lot of barre chords.

However, I’ve done this as an acoustic guitar-friendly version for those who prefer to
cut down on their barred chords. If you are not an advanced player, you can stick to the
chords excluding those in brackets (and in fact if you don’t like a barred Bm, you can 
play just Em in its place throughout quite comfortably – it sounds close enough in this context).
Better players can bring in the bracketed chords. Note: D alt is an altered version of
D, there are 2 choices shown – one with quite a stretch on the little finger, the other
with a move up the neck – take your choice!)

Have fun... Merry Christmas (if it's that time of year) and if you have any comments
feel free to email as below. Cheers, David

Do you ride on down the hillside in a buggy you have made - you have 'C' then 'D' - I'm sure it should be 'C' then 'G' like the previous verse (Does your granny always....).
